Wordless Wednesday–Winter Interest Houseplants


oncidium 'Twinkle'


It seems fitting to end the month as I began, with orchids.  In winter, they really are hard to beat for color, fragrance and bloom time.  This oncidium, ‘Twinkle’ a tiny, fragrant oncidium.


Masdevilla hybrid


This masdevilla hybrid is fragrant as well.  Even though I’ve had quite a cold for a couple of weeks, I can still smell this orchid.



Finally, although this is the most commonly sold “house plant” in the world, who can resist all the flower spikes that have yet to open their buds?  This plant will be in bloom from now until August.  It’s hard to resist the allure of a plant like that!
